Intill the case is settle this won't affect the market of any system or price of said system, both Nintendo and Sony have enoguh finacials to go head to head in there law suits without slowing down. Baisically the Wii isen't gong anywhere anytime soon.



Ehhh...nintendo can pull them selves out of it.....since when has a law suit stoped them? Never! Because there was never a lawsuit! but o well. Thats the way the cookie crumbles

How is it good to be Sony right now? Shortage of consoles, past lawsuits, losing lots of money for every console sold, damn these fanboys!

Exacatley what I was thinking, not to poke fun of your image or screen name but it's not a good time to be Wesley Snipes either with the IRS after him.

Re: ** THE NINTENDO WII GETS SUED!!!**

first of all you are an idiot, the DS sold the most of any system this month
look at this
WiimoteNothing says "you're a success" better than a lawsuit. Just ask Borat creator Sacha Baron Cohen. Or Apple. Microsoft. Sony. You can add Nintendo to that list.

The Japanese company was sued by California-based Interlink Electronics for the Wii's copyright infringements on their very own Trigger Operated Electronic Device. The Trigger Operated Electronic Device, according to the company's patent as an "Ergonomically effective mouse for operating a computer" and an invention that "relates to a trigger operated electronic device... it concerns a mouse for operating a cursor in a computer system."

Although the diagrams of Interlink's device is no dead ringer for Nintendo's Wiimote, Interlink claims ownership of the trigger element common to both. Interlink said Nintendo's Wiimote has caused them loss of royalties and reduced sales and profits. The company wants a restraining order against the sale of Nintendo's controller, payment for assessed damages (multiplied three times plus interest) and reimbursement of legal fees. The company also demanded a trial by jury.

Nintendo has this to say about the issue: the company doesn't comment on pending litigation.
also for you incorrect sales
You'll get a lot of numbers in this post, but let's start with the ones that are related to this posts title. Let's talk about console sales. The numbers below are given by the Research firm, NPD Group.

The little dual screened juggernaut, the DS sold 918,000 units in November, bringing U.S. sales to a total of 8.1 million units. The old and yet still hot PS2 followed as the second-best with 664,000 units sold. It's sales probably boosted by Square Enix's FFXII that sold at 896,000 units and has a sales record of $49 million. Third place for systems is held by the never say die GameBoy Advance with 641,000 units.

Despite Gears of War being number one at the software sales charts having sold a million units and having earned around $61.5 million, Microsoft's Xbox 360 is at fourth this November with 511,000 units sold. However despite being fourth this November, overall the Xbox 360, has a life-to-date US sales number of 3.8 million units.

Despite having it's launch date mid November, The Wii sold 476,000 units for the month. The PSP follows the Wii, having sold around 412,000 units during November. Hopefully now that  MGS: Portable Ops is out, people will enjoy running around to check out WiFi spots. Honestly, that soldier recruitment thing that the new MGS has reminds us of the "old CD collection now has a use" effect that the PS1's Monster Rancher generated. So does this mean more PSP sales? We'll check the post holiday season numbers when the time comes.

So who needs to make shipments? The PS3 sold only 197,000 units this month, this despite Sony's promise to have 400,000 units available on launch day in the U.S.

Here's what NPD Analyst Anita Frazier has to say about the numbers: "It's just such overall good news that bodes very well for the health of this industry."

Actually that's BAD FOR YOU and GOD FOR THE PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE ONE. This is because, if they stop selling the console,  NO ONE WILL MAKE GAMES FOR IT, therefore you won't have any games to play.
